Early Prezi adopter Bertalan Mesko uses Prezi to teach social media to doctors and medical professionals. Bertalan uses Prezi for not only his Webicina course at the University of Debrecen, Medical and Health Science Center but also for all his 80+ presentations worldwide.

Another mention at #prismSA:
The course launched yesterday, and includes sixteen modules. Each module includes an interactive presentation built with Prezi, which Dr Meskó estimates will take between 40 and 80 minutes for most students, and an evaluation, which takes 10-12 minutes. Participants can earn badges for successfully completing each module and passing its evaluation. Best of all, this excellent professional development opportunity is completely free of charge. Thanks to Dr Meskó for his excellent work and for building this very useful course!
